July 11: Live With CaitrĂ­ona O'Leary 'Unaccompanied' #10 on Facebook

July 10, 2020 | By Heresy Records

Live With Caitríona O'Leary 'UNACCOMPANIED' #10

 

“Surely, National Treasure Status Cannot Be Far Away…Caitriona O’leary has a proud background as composer and singer in not just exploring roads less travelled, but of discovering paths not travelled at all...an enigmatic performer with otherworldly qualities that thrives in areas of the unusual and unreal… that greatest of tributes: I’d like to hear that again.”        

(Dick O'Riordan, Sunday Business Post)

 

On Saturday July 11, at 2:30 PM Dublin time (GMT 1:00, EST 9:30 AM), Heresy Records' recording artist Caitríona O'Leary (www.caitrionaoleary.com) will perform the eighth installment of Unaccompanied, her ongoing weekly mini-concert series (in costume) live-streamed from her room in Dublin on Facebook. This series was inspired by a concert O'Leary performed as part of Ireland Performs, an online series of concerts established in response to the Covid-19 pandemic presented by Culture Ireland and Facebook Ireland. Videos of all concert are available for replay on her YouTube channel:
